Default New Vegas 8 Ball owner

So this is my first Victory.

I am coming from a 2008 Kawasaki Special Edition Mean Streak.

I have only rode my Vegas all of about 15minutes before I had to get back on the road to get home. I left the Vegas at the dealership to get all the add-ons installed.

So when I pick it up she will have a passenger seat, passenger pegs and the Stage 1 Swept exhaust kit.

Total price after taxes and add-ons - Just over $14K

Her nickname - "Lucky" - for a couple reasons - First, I am lucky to even to get her - Second, she is the #777 victory in 2011.

Here are a couple pics of the bike on the show room floor.

Default Welcome

Welcome, my Victory brother. I got my 08 Vegas last year, and I've got nothing but good things to say about the bike. No regrets about going Victory. Get ready for a lot of looks and questions. You are in for a great summer!

Welcome to the Victory Forums.

A few helpful pointers,
  • Please take the time to read the “Sticky” threads in the “Victory Forums Rules and New Members Introductions” forum. This will help you out a LOT with the Victory Forums.

  • The Search feature is your friend! You will find the answers to a lot of your questions by using it.

  • If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature, please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

Please add the year and model of your bike to your signature, so we know how to help when you ask a question!




Ok now the copy and paste is out of the way.

I would advise you to skip the Swept pipes. They rob the bike of power. Get the Xbows or Shotguns but not the swepts.

They don't appear to have just plain, black wedges but this link:

http://cycleopsusa.com/store/index.html

has a few choices for black wedges with engraving. You have to scroll about halfway down the page to find these.

I also thought that Kewl Metal made black wedges as well but I didn't see them on their site. Cycle Solutions may also have what you're looking for so give them a look if you haven't already.
